Friday headlines, with female empowerment

By brendon June 24, 2011 @ 3:14 PM


KATY PERRY – will tie Michael Jacksons record if her 5th single off ‘Teenage Dream’ goes to number 1 like the other 4 have. And also if she gets two dozen little boys drunk and blows them. (mtv)

CARS 2 – is the worst reviewed Pixar movie ever, and not coincidentally they’ve now unveiled the characters for ‘Brave’, their first movie with a female protagonist. So I guess it’s about girl problems, like when there are no tampons in the ladies room. (joblo)

THE SUPERMAN REBOOT – will have Julia Ormond joining Russell Crowe as Supermans parents on Krypton before it explodes. Because this will tell the Superman origin story. Yet again. Otherwise no one would know what was going on. “There’s a new director now, so naturally I assumed the character would be completely different,” audiences will no doubt say to one another. “By showing me what I already know and saw in two other movies, I’m now reassured that Superman is still exactly the same as always. And it was great. I enjoy watching the same story over and over and over again. I’m like a fucking toddler.” (deadline)

MEN IN BLACK 3 – will cost $215 million, mostly because Will Smith is a pain in the ass. (the wrap)

JERSEY SHORE – will have an all new cast next year. Either that or they won’t, because MTV is denying these reports. As if they could ever find 8 more drunk Italians in New Jersey. (hollywood reporter)

PETER FALK – died “peacefully at his Beverly Hills home” last night at the age of 83, according to his family. But maybe their story comes unraveled if the detective says there’s “Just one more thing…” right before leaving. It can’t hurt to try. (ew)

PAZ DE LA HUERTA – walked around NYC on the phone. Presumably with someone asking what her tits felt like. (inf)

Will Smiths enormous trailer is pissing people off

By brendon May 11, 2011 @ 12:33 PM


Will Smith is in New York City these days filming ‘Men In Black 3′, and some local crybabies are upset because his trailer is two stories high, 53 feet long, 1,150 total square feet, has 22 wheels, weighs 30 tons and includes a full-service kitchen with arched windows and Italian cherrywood cabinetry, marble floors throughout, a movie theater with a 100-inch screen, an upstairs lounge with full bar, offices for up to 30 of his assistants and writing staff, a room dedicated to doing his makeup, a large bedroom, and an all-granite bathroom. Apparently they don’t like the smell of gas and a wall between them and their customers. Oh boo-hoo.

The New York Post says…

“This thing is like a duplex,” said Myrna Reisman, who lives next to where the trailer was parked. “How would Will Smith feel if I parked that thing out in front of his house? People forget this is a residential neighborhood, not a film lot.”
Other locals who live nearby say Smith should think a bit beyond his superstar needs.
“The smell that comes along with it is disgusting. It’s like living in a gas station. I really like Will Smith, but I would be embarrassed if that was my trailer. A little modesty goes a long way.”

It’s also limiting access to several local businesses because customers can’t get to them, but what is Will Smith supposed to do? Walk on non-marble floors, like some homeless person? It’s not like he can just go back to the luxury apartment he’s renting, because that’s almost a mile away. It might as well be on the moon.

VICTORIA BECKHAM – went to Barneys in Beverly Hills to buy a cheerleader outfit to wear for her husband. This is the only bad thing about Posh. She’s married to David Beckham. How the hell do you follow that dude? She might as well be married to Batman. (the sun)

BAD BOYS 3 – 14 years after the original and 6 after the sequel, Columbia Pictures has hired a writer for ‘Bad Boys 3′.  Michael Bay, Jerry Bruckheimer, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are all interested but not signed. When asked if he had any ideas for the story, Bay said, “The what?” (hollywood reporter)

EMINEM – his ex-wife Kim told a Detroit radio station, “If you’re going to have sex with Marshall, make sure you have a little blue pill, because otherwise it does not work.” If I was a woman I’m not sure I’d go on the radio and brag that men can’t get an erection when I try to have sex with them, but maybe I’m just shy. (the sun)

CURRENT SONG – Beck, ‘Timebomb’. The random chatter of people in the background is a cool touch. It’s as if I have friends, and they’ve invited me to a party!

Afternoon Headlines

VICTORIA BECKHAM – was in Denver today to fill in for Paula Abdul on the first day of American Idol auditions. New rumors claim Paula may still return if they pay her 10M. To recap: Paula quit late Tuesday night, and by Friday morning the producers had replaced her with someone far smarter, hotter, younger and free. Ahh, well played Paula. I think someone has been reading “The Prince”. (source = the ap)

WILL SMITH AND JADA PINKETT – deny that they are scientologists and say the private school they founded will not teach scientology, but Jada fired the head of the school last week after she complained about the curriculum, and now her replacement is an active scientologist. Conspiracy, or is that just what the aliens want us to think? (source = radar)

HEATHER GRAHAM – is in Barcelona today with her boyfriend, who I heard is gay and/or cheating and/or kills prostitutes. Whichever one might drive her to me faster, that’s the one I heard. (hq jump = here)

EXCLUSIVE:  Megan Fox Gets Naked on Jennifers Body in BC (USA an

KATIE HOLMES – taped a guest appearance on So You Think You Can Dance yesterday, and yes she will be dancing.   In fact a source said: “She is killing it. She looks incredible. Everyone is absolutely floored by how talented she is.”  Then the source was asked his name, and he said, “Tom, wait, um, yes, T-Tom … Cru … Crew … Sing … Ton … Berg.  Tom Crusingtonberg.  Yes, yes that will do.”  (source = us)

WILL SMITH – and his wife Jada often sneak off during parties or pull over on the side of the road to have sex.  Well big deal so do I.  Wait.  Oh they probably mean with a partner.  Never mind.  I’m so lonely!  (source – imdb)

MEGAN FOX – was photographed topless on the set of Jennifers Body in May of last year, so I have no idea why the always great Daily News is making a big deal out of that today, but as it turns out I also don’t care.  Look, tits!   (source = new york daily news)

will smith is number one

By brendon February 10, 2009 @ 1:32 PM

Forbes magazine has named Will Smith the most bankable star in Hollywood after an industry survey asking what actors can most easily attract financing, theatrical distribution, and an audience.  Angelina Jolie tied for second on the list, and was one of only three women in the top 20.  So don’t confuse this with the Top 20 People Who Beat Me Up In The Third Grade.  That list only had two girls names on it.
